Saturday we went to a hotdog roast over an open fire. Friday a lady in our church decided to have this cook out. She called everyone in the church and invited them. You can do that when you have a small church but still it was more than 20 phone calls I'm sure. So a bunch of people got together and we had a good time. It was a great example of community. Believers should get together outside of church sponsored activities and do life together.
So I've been more intentional lately at connecting with people. I know I need friends inside and outside of full time ministry. So through e-mail, phone calls, golf and going out to eat I am being intentional about relationships. I need to model what I teach. And I am trying to do just that.
